Fruit Cake

This story goes back to ...oh...when I was 8 or 9 years old...it was before people  realized that if you received a fruit cake for Christmas....you weren't supposed to eat it...you were supposed to send it on to someone else.
One other thing I was unaware of was....you weren't supposed to consume the whole damm thing    as soon as it arrived.

Yep...but....that's what I did.

Today, 70 or so years later...I can't even stand to look at a picture of a fruit cake...
Showing one in front of me is like flashing a cross in Dracula's face.

So much for "Time heals all wounds."

(Incidentally, that's  one of my favorite
 quotes because you can change the words around a little...and it's still great quote:  "Time wounds all Heels."
